child immediately confronts three basic needs -- food, shelter and education. in the beginning, these needs are met at home. but in industrial societies, that soon changes. teacher: times three... we educate our children in schools. how would you read this number ? 21,000. you're getting these two a little mixed up from the example before. we earn our daily bread in offices, and we buy it in markets. but in many cultures, the household is still the most basic unit of society, where people spend most of their days, producing what they need to live and teaching their children their values and culture. anthropologist richard wilk. a household is an activity group. it's a group of people who work together, who consume together, who take part in all the activities of everyday life. it's a unit of people cooperating and sharing -- putting money together, putting work together, taking care of children, living under a single roof. keach: what makes households so different from culture to culture ? archaeologists are looking for patterns in the past. their search takes us back to a time

major fear, as you heard at the time-- "do i need surgery?" so i want to educate them. i don't want to say, "honey, you're going to be fine. take my medicine and go." but yet she's the type of patient, i think if i said that, she would have been fine. i think there are some patients who do well with a doctor who makes an assessment fully in their own mind, makes a decision, informs the patient what's best for them, gives them the prescription, and the visit is over. there are other patients where that just isn't going to work because they won't take the medication if they haven't been told more what's going on, the reasons why, the possible side effects and risks of medication, and their other choices, and the possible outcomes of those choices. another pothole is there are some systematic errors that we make in judging one alternative versus another, one treatment versus another, for example. one product versus another. and so we need to be alert to ways that we can circumvent these errors in judgment, ways, for example, that we can interpret the kinds of words that physicians use
